Wedding card

One of my husband's former co-workers, Sarah, asked me if I could make a wedding card for her. She is invited to a wedding on New Year's Eve, and wanted a winter-y and New Year-y card. This is what I made:


I hope she likes it. :)

Hoping for some crafting time tonight, because making this card had me wanting to do MORE! Is my mojo back? See, it has been on Christmas break or something...

Snowy greetings,

Christening Card

My mother asked me if I could make a card for little Leo Alexander, who's being christened today. This is what I made for him:


The picture is lousy, but I will comfort myself with the fact that the Winter Solstice has come and gone, and from now on everything will lighten up by the day! *yeey* Bring on some spring feelings!! :D

Toodeloo!

The Last Christmas Cards

...for this year, anyway. ;)

I had to make a few more - one for Kajsa's daycare and two for our nextdoor neighbours, but now I think I have everything covered. To be honest; I'm a little tired of making Christmas cards now... *heehee*





So with these cards I wish you all a very merry Christmas - I hope you'll have a good time with family and friends. I'm going to spend Christmas Eve at my parent's house, together with David and Kajsa, and my grandparents on my father's side. It'll be a very quiet Christmas - just the way I like it.

Take care!

Christmas card for Cards of Maria

Just a quick note to let you know I'm still around. It's a bit stressed out at the moment, and I've lost my inspiration so I'll show you some old things that I haven't shown here before. I hope that my mojo returns during the Christmas holidays - I really need some therapy right now = scrappy time!! ;)


This Christmas card is made for Cards of Maria with beautiful Maja desing papers - the Gammeldags jul collection. Love it!!

Take care and have a great week!

More Matchboxes

...just because Sweden is so bloody DARK this time of year. We need to light tons of candles to survive (mentally), and we need to tell ourselves it's nice and cosy. ;-) Well, that's me, I guess - but I have my therapy for this darkness: SCRAP!!! :D

Proof? Ok:


Have more for you, but not today... Will save some for another day instead of giving you all at once. ;-)

Take care - I'm off to lunch now!

Match boxes

I've been busy tonight:

These little match boxes are for a Christmas market we're having in my school - and I thought I'd contribute in some way. I hope that they'll be appreciated. :)

Take care - I¨m off to bed to read my thrilling book now!

Kajsa is getting really good at using her Lego blocks:

She goes on and on until she can't reach any higher. It's so cute...

I haven't forgotten about the blog - it has just been a bit busy, and almost everything I've crafted is for challenges and designteams, so I can't show you just yet. ;)

Christmas matchbox

This matchbox has been lying around for a while and I finally took a picture of it so I could show you. I've used materials from Brunkullan - flowers from Prima, papers from Graphic45 and a gorgeous brad from YouDo. The letters are QK Haunted and the picture of the children is from a patterned paper from 3ndy papir - absolutely beautiful papers if you like vintage:


I have some more christmas cards lined up for you, so welcome back tomorrow for more updates!

Toodelooo!

As the previous christmas cards, this one is also made for Brunkullan.

On this card, anyway:


This one is especially made for Brunkullan - isn't the stamp adorable?

Tadaaaa!

Some more Christmas

Oh yes, I've been told that I could no longer call myself the Grinch. What?! They say that if you've made as many Christmas cards as I have so far this year, you no longer qualify. Huh? I don't get it... *hehe*

Well, in that case I might as well show you some more Christmas projects, especially made for Brunkullan:



...and I have to admit that there are MORE on my list of things to blog - more Christmas related things... I might not be the Grinch, after all?

Take care!
/ The Grin... Sorry! Jeanette

A Sunny Thank You

This card is made for Cards of Maria, and I've used one of my precious sunflowers on it.


If there is anyone who knows where I can get my hands on more of these little beauties, please write me a comment, and give me a link if you have one! I'd be so happy if I found them somewhere! I need MORE! ;)

Have a nice Sunday!

Journaling Jar in Green

So, this is part two of my journaling jar story right now. This one comes in green:


My mother came by this afternoon to pick them both up, and she was very pleased with them - that's a good start! :)

I'm not entirely happy with some details, but it's nothing to get upset over, so I'll let it go now. I just have to hope that the recipient (Monica) is going to be pleased with it. That's all that matters.

Tonight is a very quiet night at home - husband is downstairs in his den, working on his music, and I just put Kajsa to bed and am hoping she'll sleep tight so mummy can have some time with her scrap toys. With some new dies from Quickutz new Christmas set "Santa's Workshop" (and extras) there is lots of inspiration in my head... ;)

I've also put in an order at Wild Orchid Crafts, which I hope will arrive on Monday or Tuesday, since it was shipped a couple of days ago from England. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, since my flower garden needs a refill (but not if you ask Karin or Stina...). ;)

Well, I'd better make use of my precious scrap time - so I'll see you later!
Tadaaaa!

Journaling Jar in Blue

My mother's friend asked if I could make two journaling jars for her friends - of course, I said! One of them is ready, the other one is "under construction". ;)


I'm not a blue scrapper, but I had orders to make something with blue, so it was a challenge for me. I was happy with the result - maybe because it was a mix of blue and brown? Anyhow - I have to finish jar number 2 tonight/tomorrow, since they are to be delivered tomorrow afternoon. The orders for the second journaling jar are that I have to use green. That shouldn't be a problem. :)

Take care and have a great weekend!

Envelope card

There has been a cyber crop over at pyssel.net just recently - with lots of fun challenges - and I managed to make ONE contribution to one of the challenges. An envelope card. It was my first try and it was SO much fun - I'll definitely make more of those in the future.

This is my take on the challenge:


The bonus is that I won the challenge, with the closest voting there can be! There was only ONE vote that separated my card from A-C's gorgeous envelope card, and it was close all the way through! Thanks, hun, for the race!! :D

Thanks for the visit and take care!

Care for a sketch?

There's a sketch challenge over at Cards of Maria's blog if you feel like participating this month. You have until November 27 to submit your work, and I hope that the sketch might inspire you - I'm the one who has drawn it! :)

This is my take on the sketch:

"Happy Birthday"

So - run along now and join the fun!! You can create a card, a LO or whatever you feel like, as long as you follow the sketch.

Have a nice Sunday - here in Sweden it's Father's Day today, so we're going to my dad for some dinner tonight, and I'm off to my scrap table to make him a card now!

Take care!

Another Christmas Card

I found a christmas card that I haven't shown you yet:

"Merry Christmas"

The tag is coloured and stamped using Tim Holtz products, and the letters are covered in Stickles Rock Candy, from the very same genious TH. ;) The letters are QK Haunted - my favourite QK alpha. Flowers are from Prima Marketing.

Since I never went to the Thursday crop this week (had a bad headache and was way too tired) I don't have that many new things to show you, but I'm working on it! Me and my husbands older daughter (11 yrs) have been a bit crafty though. We'll see what I come up with... ;)

Have a wonderful weekend!

New stamps

I bought some new stamps on the craft's fair in October, but I haven't shown you what I've done with some of them. This card is a mini - good to have, perhaps for a bunch of flowers or a small gift.

The text says "Congratulations!"

There will probably be another update tomorrow - I've lots of things yet to show you! ;-)

Tadaaa!

The cheeks!!!

A picture from last Christmas - my little sweetie's cheeks are the cutest there are!!! I just had to scrap that photo - and I did it with a patterned paper background, which is something I've done perhaps once before! Scary, but fun!!


Tomorrow is scrap night again, so I'll probably have some more stuff to show on Friday! ;-)

Take care, guys!!

A friend turning 40

One of our friends turned 40 this last weekend. I sent him a card, since we don't see them so often, and I couldn't help myself - I had to tease him a bit:


I hope he liked it and that he had a great birthday with his family!

Sweetie

Time for a layout, don't you think?


My daughter Kajsa - of course the sweetest girl in the world, according to me! ;)

A kiss for Christmas?

Well, the story behind this card is that I accidentally put a spot of red/pink on this sweet little girl's face, so I had to repair it. I gave her lips to send someone a kiss with:


The card was made as a challenge - I had to follow a sketch and I had to use a number of different materials, for example at least 6 leaves etc. The leaves part was hard because I hardly ever use them on my cards - so, GOOD challenge! Thanks Annika, darling! ;)

Take care!

Tim Holtz Christmas card

I've made this card with one of my Tim Holtz stamps - the lamp post is soooo gorgeous!

The alpha stickers say "Merry Christmas"

The flower is a Prima Trellis Rose, which I have squirted some Tattered Angels glimmer mist (Brick) on. I've realised that I really like those glimmer mists, so now I need more of them. Shame on me - I can make my own using Perfect Pearls and distress inks, but I'm lazy...

Since I'm on my way to a crop today (and the rest of the weekend) I've made sure there's an update for you tomorrow as well, so check in if your curious!

Have a great weekend!

A RAK card

I have made yet another RAK card for my stash. I plan to send some RAKs out soon, so it's good to have the cards ready. ;)


The Steel pen-piece is a square from a Graphic45-paper, what else? ;)

Have a wonderful Friday, y'all!

Another birthday card coming up!

This one is covered in a Prima swirl and flowers, just because I felt like it:


I do love using my mini roses and those cute Adornit alpha stickers. The patterned paper is a Graphic45 - I have to try and use some other brands now, I'm stuck on them at the moment. ;)

The weekend it closing in now - on Saturday I'm off to a crop in Ärla, close to Eskilstuna, with a bunch of fantastic girls! I'm really looking forward to that, and it gives me a chance to use my new wheeled tote for the first time! Do you think it will hold everything I want to bring...? ;)

Take care!

My Mother's Best Friend

...turned 60 just recently, and my mum asked if I could make her a card. She likes purple and black, so I made her this:


Mum told me she was very happy about the card, and that's all that matters! I was very glad to hear that, because purple is NOT my colour and I hardly ever use it. It was a fun card to make, though, so I'll try to challenge myself to use some more purple in the future! ;)

More updates coming up tomorrow, so stay close if you want to see what I have in store for you...

Tadaaa!

More Christmas cards

I don't know where my Grinch is?! The non-Christmassy me has vanished, disappeared! :0 Well, I'm not really looking forward to all the Christmas decorationg and stuff like that, but I do enjoy my card making for Christmas. ;) Here's more proof of that:


For this I used my new stamps by Deleelsia (can be found at Kortmakaren)- they are absolutely beautiful and I really look forward to using them again. I'm very happy with how this card turned out - the colours are yummy! I think I have to make more cards with these colours.

Tomorrow there will be a new update, so if you are curious I'll see you then! ;)

Take care!

A card for a newbie

One of my best friends recently gave birth to a son, and I've made a card to send to the little newbie and the happy family. The little one is going to have the name Love, a fairly common Swedish name which is a Swedish form of the French name Louis. Yes, I cheated a bit - I didn't know that so I looked it up at svenskanamn.se. ;)

The text says "Welcome Love"

The proud mother might be snooping around here, but I'll let her have a peek anyway. ;)

The weekend is now over, and tomorrow I'm off to work again. This week will be a bit calmer (I think) since all students have the week off. Not us teachers - we have to work... *sigh* Well, well.

Check back tomorrow for new updates!

Smile!

I've created a LO with my mischievous daughter - she always smiles to grandpa's camera:


She's our little rascal - always up to something, or looking like it! ;)

I'll post some more of my latest doings tomorrow, so if you're curious - stay tuned!

Take care and have a lovely Saturday evening!

No blogging - lots of scrapping

We've had visitors this week (our dear friends Annika & Adam), and that meant many scrappy evenings, and I've been enjoying every moment of it. I have several cards and a few layouts to show you, but I need to take pictures of a few of them first and the batteries to my flash is charging right now. Will try to do it tomorrow in between visit from mother-in-law and garden work. :)

I also have to tell you that I've preordered the new Christmas set from Quickutz, called Santa's Workshop! The alpha is really nice and the dies (for making your own mini albums) look very promising! :D I'm not sure when it'll arrive, but I suppose it can't be THAT long. Looking forward to playing with those dies... ;)

Tadaaaa for now!

The Gothenburg Weekend

Hi all!

I'm back from our trip to Gothenburg now, and let me tell you - I had a GREAT time!! :D Not only did I get to spend some quality time with my husband and my good friends, but I also stayed at a great hotel, had great food, met lots of sweet scrap girls and did some fabulous shopping (and thus spent loads of money).

Since I really love to look at pictures of what other people shop, I'm going to indulge you in my shopping too - so if you're not interested; close your browser NOW! ;D

My collection of Distress Inks is now complete! ;)


Cardstock, yummy stamps (yes, there are Christmas stamps there, too!) and Prima flowers.

Plenty of alphas - foam, mini stickers, Thickers - Pearlmakers and a QK die I've been dying for (HA HA!) ;D

Finally - my very own scrap tote on wheels!!!

So, needless to say, I'm quite pleased with the weekend. Also, Kajsa has been a ray of sun at her grandparent's place - she just didn't want to go to sleep Saturday evening. Go figures - she takes after her parents - little night owl. ;)

Have to get back to work now before my break is over.

Take care!!
